Migrating from one email system to another can be a daunting task, but it is necessary for various reasons. Email migration is the process of transferring all your email data and messages from one email system to another.
Email migration is necessary for several reasons: to update your email system, consolidate multiple email accounts into one, or move to a new email provider. No matter what the reason, migrating your email is an important task that should not be taken lightly.
The different types of email migrations
Email migration is the process of transferring email data from one email system to another. There are two types of email migrations: cutover migration and staged migration. In a cutover migration, all the data is transferred over at once. In a staged migration, data is transferred in batches. Which type of email migration you should choose depends on several factors, including how much data needs to be migrated, how many users need to be migrated, and whether or not you have experience with email migrations.
